Story By WJFW News Team


TOWN OF CASSIAN - We now know for certain Kaye and Mark Juel died in yesterday's house fire near Harshaw.

The Oneida County Sheriff's Office confirmed they were inside the burned home on Partridge Lane in the Town of Cassian.

The two were involved members of the Oneida County community, and we spoke with both Kay and Mark on Newswatch 12 in the past.

Kaye was the Oneida County Jail administrator.


Mark was a Iraq war veteran who served two decades in the military.


Visitation for Mark and Kaye will be held Monday Feb. 18, from 4 p.m. to 7 a.m. at Carlson Funeral Home in Rhinelander.


The funeral will be at Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church in Harshaw on Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 11 a.m.


Oneida County Sheriff Grady Hartman says, "We are deeply saddened by the tragic and sudden loss of Kaye and her husband Mark. All of the employees in the Sheriff's Office value and honor all of those who have served us in the public safety community and our thoughts and prayers will remain with Kaye and Mark and their families and many friends."


We still don't know the cause of the fire.


A preliminary investigation found no signs of criminal activity, and foul play is not suspected at this time.

TOMAH - Air Force veteran Jason Bishop says he has struggled in vain to find chronic pain relief at several Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals, including one in Tomah.

Bishop says the VA hospitals have offered him treatment, including prescriptions for narcotics, but few long-term solutions.

Bishop was one of thousands of veterans to receive the narcotic as well as a prescription for a benzodiazepine, a class of psychoactive drugs that act as a tranquilizer. Experts say combining the two raises risk of injury and death.

The Tomah hospital is at the center of multiple probes after reports of narcotic overprescribing practices and retaliatory behavior surfaced in January, allegations already affirmed by a preliminary report. U.S. House and Senate committees are to hold a joint field hearing Monday in Tomah.
